I believe that the most effective steps toward healing and lasting change involve choosing strategies that have been proven successful with others, while reflecting the goals of the individual, couple or family joining me in therapy.
Whether seeking help for distress, or looking for the keys that will help unlock growth and potential, together we can identify the issues that need to be explored and the paths that would be most useful in helping to clarify and attain your personal and relational objectives.
Using a personalized blend of interpersonal, cognitive-behavioral and psychodynamic strategies, the therapeutic process will focus on your strengths, abilities, and uniqueness, as we walk together on a journey toward healing and wholeness.
